Zoas zoas zoas, you need more zoas!
I listened to you.
Though I replaced zoas with palys. Same difference. Paly are zoa on steroids.
It's been a while. Life got in the way.
Tried two new fish. First was a two-spot goby I got for free. I rehomed him when I learned he needed pods. Second was a black ocellaris clown fish. Great choice, except he came sick and ended up spending about 40 days in quarantine. Two weeks being treated for ick and the balance recovering. He was recently reintroduced into the tank again. Removed some of the sps and moved them to my other 8g, which is an older system. I like this as a paly/zoa/lps tank more.
Peeechurs are here...
Full tank shot... The clown is a ham and tbh, a bit aggressive to the firefish. Not biting aggressive, just annoyingly boisterous for the firefish's taste.
Firefish in his favorite cave
Top view, I still need to get a hydor Flo. It broke.
Valley with gsp, I managed to find a smaller piece that matches the large one with regard to neon color under LEDs.
Zoa rock with nice fat aiptasia. A big one, hasn't spread... yet.
More gsp, see how I have a lighter one (bottom right). I don't like this one, he'll go to another tank once I find one that matches.
green infusion paly with cyphastrea. Yes, Newmann, if you're still around, that's your green infusion paly.
Your nuke greens are also around there somewhere. Cyphastreas did very well as did my favias. Elegance didn't do well and neither did some of the sps. Tank, despite the purigen and chemi-pure elite is still too new. It's a paly tank now pretty much. They are like wildfire and beautiful.
The Caribbean paly that survived the 36g crash. Yes my 36g crashed, I'll update that journal later. Macro bomb.
This guy survived. Doing much, much better and I see new polyps already.
Lunar eclipse palythoas with an anemone crab. I got anemone crabs for this tank too. They're doing great. I think there was a scuffle, but they have three separate territories now.
Duncan, I lost count how many heads.
Unidentified hornet zoanthids. This thing has gone crazy, many polyps now. All over the other side.
Red hornet zoanthids and branching green favia, that's a new guy. A lot more than five polyps now.
I don't have a great picture of my God of Wars right now. They attacked my green people eaters, or somebody did, could be the birdsnests as well. The GOWs have taken off. I started with 2 polyps in one colony and 4 in the other. I thought I had 16 polyps as of now, but it turns out there are significantly more. I tried to count them, but my clownfish kept charging my hand and I didn't want to be bitten.
No plans for this tank right now, other than the move. Yes, I got a boyfriend now and this is his favorite tank, so we're moving it to his place. Maybe a fungia, a cleaner shrimp and a perching fish of some type in the future. Not sure about a goby/pistol pair, I've got the Christmas favia on the substrate and I don't want anybody bothering it or the duncan. Perhaps though a yasha will make less mess. I know the YWG and the tiger pistol are way too messy. It's either a yasha or a clown goby of some type. I like the green ones. Fat heads. Hehehe. I may frag some palys when I get the proper protection. Won't do it until I have goggles, a facemask, gloves, and a sharp scalpel.
Thanks for looking. I missed you guys.
